Paper presented at the 7th International Conference on Heat Transfer, Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics, Turkey, 19-21 July, 2010.
In the Sustainable development's implementation process, the education is a tool that must be valued. The curricular orientations must suggest the energetic problems approach. One of the proposals looks for the need of evaluating the weather effect in working places and in the human being. Many studies made in the laboratory and in the field show relationship between thermal comfort and the human being performance (worker/student). Thermal conditions are necessary to provide a pleasant environmental that favours the teaching and the learning. In this paper we are particularly interested with the performance of a teaching environment that may be adjusted (better comfort) to students and/or workers (maintain the energy balance, both physical and psychic, without such an effort of adaption). The first results are shown in an investigation that was made, identified as different thermal comfort spaces and analysed some biometeorological indices.
